A note from the Children’s Pastor:

As men and women who long to glorify God, we understand the importance of growing and maturing in our faith, and the same can be said for children. Our purpose is to introduce them to the love and saving grace of God and then cultivating that relationship. We do that through the process of discipleship – intentionally investing in the children’s lives with the truths of Scripture through our teaching, activities, and small groups.

In order for this to become a reality, we need adults willing to invest in our children. This means directing our minds from a “child care” perspective to a “discipleship” state-of-mind. Everything that is done in the classroom is for the intent purpose of building up these kids in Christ. Can you believe that these little ones who have put their faith in God completely embody the Holy Spirit?? That same power that comes from the Spirit that lives in you and me lives in them! Incredible!  Would you prayerfully consider spending an hour on Sunday mornings investing in the lives of these kids?

Safety

Your child’s safety is important to us. Here are just a few ways we actively protect the children at Open Door Fellowship:

  • New volunteers participate in a background check process.
  • At least 2 adults are in a classroom at all times.
  • Volunteers are known by our ministry team.
  • Leaders are coached in class procedures and safety.
